Not all nursing home abuse and elder abuse is physical in nature. At times, abusers will target the property and assets of an elder. Stealing property or money from an elder by means of deceit, gaining trust, schemes or coercion are all ways that elder financial abuse may be committed.
Signs to watch for in regards to financial abuse include: large withdrawals, unexplained purchases or payments, new "friends", a sudden transfer of property, an unexplained change in the will, etc.
